Chitosan (CS), a natural biopolymer, has been extensively explored for multiple applications including tissue engineering, gene therapy, bio-imaging and sewage treatment due to its abundant availability, intrinsic biocompatibility, biodegradability and tunable biological properties. Nevertheless, the actual use of CS is limited on account of its water-insolubility in physiological circumstances, which could be optimized by chemical modifications via active side groups. Etherification is one of the most widespread-used reactions to obtain water-soluble CS derivatives, such as hydroxybutyl CS (HBC). Hydroxybutyl CS (HBC), synthesized by grafting hydroxybutyl groups to the functional hydroxyl and amino groups of CS skeleton, has been demonstrated to possess superior biological properties over CS, especially satisfactory water solubility in neutral condition and reversible stimulus-responsive against the external thermo. Meanwhile, the unique characteristics of thermal sensitive "sol-gel" and "sol-micelle" transition have gained tremendous attention, which differ in heterogeneously and homogeneously synthesized HBC. Herein, we discuss the synthesis (heterogeneously and homogeneously) of HBC, favorable physiochemical properties of HBC and HBC-centered biocomposites in a range of formulations or dosage forms such as sponges, gels, nanoparticles, nanofibers and films. Meanwhile, we summarize the potential bio-applications and trends of HBC and HBC centered biocomposites and offer our perspectives on the plausible advances in this field in near future.

Abstract null null Chitosan is the most abundant natural biopolymer, after cellulose. It is mainly derived from the fungi, shrimp's shells, and exoskeleton of crustaceans, through the deacetylation of chitin. The ecological sustainability associated with its exercise and the flexibility of chitosan owing to its active functional hydroxyl and amino groups makes it a promising candidate for a wide range of applications through a variety of modifications. The biodegradability and biocompatibility o...

Allergic rhinitis (AR), histamine-mediated upper airway inflammatory disorder, is characterized by sneezing, itching, airway hyperreactivity, etc. Though it is clinically well-managed by non-invasive inhaled antihistamines, for example, ketotifen (KT, histamine release inhibitor) and cetirizine (CTZ, histamine receptor antagonist), inherent defects of short mucosal in situ retention, frequent administration resulting in irritation to mucosa, and lack of target-specific sequential release of dual...

Abstract Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine have entered a new stage of development by the recent progress in biology, material sciences, and particularly an emerging additive manufacturing technique, three-dimensional (3D) printing. 3D printing is an advanced biofabrication technique which can generate patient-specific scaffolds with highly complex geometries while hosting cells and bioactive agents to accelerate tissue regeneration. Chitosan hydrogels themselves have been widely used...

In the last decade, the interest toward the formulation of polymer films for cultural heritage protection continuously grew, and these films must be imperatively transparent, removable, and should not react/interact with surface of the artworks. In this research, bionanocomposite films, based on chitosan (Ch) and pectin (P) and containing naturally occurring fillers and antioxidants, were formulated by solvent casting methods and were accurately characterized. The natural halloysite nanotubes (H...

Chitosan is increasingly used for safe nucleic acid delivery in gene therapy studies, due to well-known properties such as bioadhesion, low toxicity, biodegradability and biocompatibility. Furthermore, chitosan derivatization can be easily performed to improve the solubility and stability of chitosan–nucleic acid polyplexes, and enhance efficient target cell drug delivery, cell uptake, intracellular endosomal escape, unpacking and nuclear import of expression plasmids. As in other fields, chitos...
